fes·toon | fe-ˈstün
A design motif of a garland or string of flowers, leaves and ribbons
A festoon is a type of necklace that contains several drapes or swags of beads, chains, metal extensions, or other parts as the core elements of the design. The original definition is a “wreath” that hangs from two points, so while not originally a jewelry term, it is now used to define jewelry that hangs similarly to a garland. The term can also refer to a common form of ornamentation in architecture featuring foliage or fruit hanging from ribbons. One of the most famous examples of festoon jewelry is the necklace that Queen Elizabeth II wore when she ascended to the throne in 1952.
